The Square Enix Collective Opens to Developers After Pilot Phase

Starting today, developers can begin submitting their pitches to the Collective. 

Square Enix has announced the first team to emerge from the pilot phase of its Collective initiative. Montreal-based developer Tuque Games will begin a crowd funding campaign for World War Machine, a post-human RPG in which the player takes the form of, well, a death machine.

World War Machine obviously caught the eye of a lot of people,” said Collective project lead Phil Elliott in a press release. “With 90% of those who voted on the project indicating potential backing through crowdfunding, we’re very happy that Tuque Games decided to accept our offer for continued support on Indiegogo, we’ll let you know when the campaign page is live.”

As of today, Square Enix has opened the Collective to all developers to submit their ideas. New pitches will be published weekly on Mondays. The developer terms of use are posted here.

The Collective is platform created by Square Enix that allows developers to submit pitches and gives gamers the opportunity to vote for their favorites, similar to Steam Greenlight. Square Enix mentors those who score favor with the fan community and a partnership with Indiegogo is used to financially back the project.
